Milk allergen prompts recall of frozen dairy dessert

Manufacturers of frozen desserts Arctic Zero Inc. have voluntarily recalled pints and bars of ice cream because a milk allergen in the sweet desserts’ ingredients were not declared on the labels. 

Kirk Supermarket and Pharmacy is among local stores that has removed the product from its shelves. 

In a statement from Kirk’s, the supermarket advised consumers who have purchased the products and have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.  

No illness involving a packaged product has been reported to date.
